Formal Education Summary
Born in Eugene, Oregon, I attended Adams Elementary Kindergarten, St. Mary’s Catholic School in first and second grade, Edgewood Elementary, Spencer Butte Junior High School and South Eugene High School.
Free-lance work was the norm before high school, including picking blackberries, painting house numbers on curbs, selling seed packets, weeding, babysitting, paper routes, picking beans and picking strawberries.
During High School, I worked for Sears, C&D Ice, and at my Grandparent’s farm bucking hay.
I attended Oregon State University, receiving a Bachelor of Science Degree in Political Science. I went straight to law school at Willamette University College of Law in Salem, Oregon, receiving a law degree in 1981.
